INGREDIENTS

  • 1 recipe for Double Pie Crust
  • 6 medium apples
  • 4 to 5 large large apples
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup Domino® Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Domino® Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons rum
  • 1 egg, beaten and mixed with 2 teaspoons water

INSTRUCTIONS

Prepare pie crust according to directions; chill until needed.

Cut a small slice off of the tops of 6 medium apples and remove the stem area. Using a melon baller, hollow out the apple, removing the core and some of the apple; leave approximately a 3/4-inch” wall.

Peel and core 4 to 5 large apples, then dice in medium to small cubes; set aside.

In a large skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Add sugars, lemon juice and cinnamon. Stir in cubed apples. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in cornstarch/water mixture; stir well. Turn off heat and stir in walnuts, raisins and rum. Fill hollowed out apples with mixture; set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a 13x9-inch baking pan.

Roll out the pie crust to approximately 1/4 inch” thickness. For lattice topping, cut dough into 1/2x5-inch” strips. Form lattice top; lift and place over the filled apple. Press dough down on sides of apple; trim carefully with dull knife. Brush on egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.

For solid topping, cut dough into a circle and drape over the top of the filled apple. Press dough down on sides of apple, cut vent hole and brush on egg wash.

For leaf topping, cut small leaves out of dough; lay on top of the filled apple, covering the top, leaving a small vent hole. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Place apples in prepared pan.

Bake 10 to 14 minutes until crust is light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Serve warm.
